About: Sandra Holzman, Fabric Artist / Fine Artist

Sandra Holzman studied fine arts at the Philadelphia College of Art and completed her BFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Sandra developed the fine art of paper marbling into a technique for producing large scale fabrics with one-of-a-kind patterns of flowing colors. Her work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Designers West, House & Garden Magazine and Fiber Arts Magazine.

Additionally Sandra’s fine art work is evolving into a new phase of creative exploration. The
cutting edge painting, drawing and monotype printing adds to Sandra Holzman’s exciting artistic and creative repertoire. The light in New Mexico continues to drive her visual explorations and drives her printmaking with solar etching techniques.

Holzman teaches these disciplines to a large group of budding talents. Her students often go on to pursue their own visions with energy and success. “Teaching is a service that completes the gifts of talent and discipline with which I have been blessed.”


I particularly enjoyed your rabble-rousing spirit! Also, I’m glad I got to learn about the Procion dyes from an expert. They are way less scary than I thought.
